  1. Plato’s Bond of Love : Erôs as Participation in Beauty.Lauren Patricia Wenden Hosty Ware - unknown
    In his dialogues, Plato presents different ways in which to understand the relation between Forms and particulars. In the Symposium, we are presented with yet another, hitherto unidentified Form-particular relation: the relation is Love, which binds together Form and particular in a generative manner, fulfilling all the metaphysical requirements of the individual’s qualification by participation. Love in relation to the beautiful motivates human action to desire for knowledge of the Form, resulting in the lover actively cultivating and bringing into being (...)

  • Eros platónico y amor a los muchachos.Salvador Mas - 2013 - Isegoría 48:245-268.
    En el presente trabajo intento analizar, por una parte, el complejo entramado institucional, político e intelectual tejido en torno a la pederastia griega; por otra, la respuesta platónica ante él. Quizá en sus orígenes la pederastia fuera un rito iniciático sometido a una fuerte reglamentación; posteriormente se transformó en un tema cantado por los poetas y en un elemento de la autocomprensión aristocrática. Platón sabe que la tradición de sus admiradas Esparta y Creta, así como los poetas, ofrecen cierta cobertura (...)

  • Before Turannoi Were Tyrants: Rethinking a Chapter of Early Greek History.Greg Anderson - 2005 - Classical Antiquity 24 (2):173-222.
    According to classical and postclassical sources, the early Greek turannoi were, by definition, illegitimate rulers who overturned existing political arrangements and installed rogue monarchic regimes in their place. And on this one fundamental point at least, modern observers of archaic turannides seem to have little quarrel with their ancient informants. To this day, it remains axiomatic that Cypselus, Peisistratus, and the rest were autocrats who gained power by usurpation. Whatever their individual accomplishments, they were still, in a word, "tyrants." Relying (...)

  • El alma tiránica de Alcibíades en el Banquete de Platón.Esteban Bieda - 2016 - Agora 35 (1).
    Los hechos narrados en el Banquete de Platón tienen lugar en el año 416 a.C. Situado en el año siguiente, Tucídides destaca un aspecto puntual de la personalidad del Alcibíades histórico: sus supuestas aspiraciones tiránicas. ¿Existe alguna manera de vincular al amante del Banquete con el proto tirano de Tucídides? En el presente trabajo proponemos que la clave para explicar la complejidad del Alcibíades de Banquete radica en la descripción del alma del hombre-tiránico de República VIII-IX. Para ello, en primer (...)

  • The Problem of Alcibiades: Plato on Moral Education and the Many.Joshua Wilburn - 2015 - Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy 49:1-36.
    Socrates’ admirers and successors in the fourth century and beyond often felt the need to explain Socrates’ reputed relationship with Alcibiades, and to defend Socrates against the charge that he was a corrupting influence on Alcibiades. In this paper I examine Plato’s response to this problem and have two main aims. First, I will argue in Section 2 that (...)

  • Eros Tyrannos: Alcibiades as the Model of the Tyrant in Book IX of the Republic.Annie Larivée - 2012 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 6 (1):1-26.
    Abstract The aim of this article is to make use of recent research on `political eros ' in order to clarify the connection that Plato establishes between eros and tyranny in Republic IX, specifically by elucidating the intertextuality between Plato's work and the various historical accounts of Alcibiades. An examination of the lexicon used in these accounts will allow us to resolve certain interpretive difficulties that, to my knowledge, no other commentator has elucidated: why does Socrates blame eros for the (...)
